The High Score Resume focuses your resume on sharing the high scores you have reached and the achievements you have unlocked throughout your career. It is a format that enables you to present yourself in the most effective way possible without worrying about bragging. And it provides hiring managers and recruiters concrete proof of what you are capable of. The High Score Resume also is very clear to people reading your resume about what you would like to do next, i.e., what your next level is going to be. By showing what you have already achieved, it is easy to explain what you are capable of next. So while there are other parts of your resume that will deserve attention, the High Score Resume focuses most of your time and effort on the two most important sections of your resume: your work experience and your professional summary.
Remember those kids who started random clubs like underwater basket-weaving just so they could write, Club President on their resumes? Even if the club never met? Right. This section is your chance to show that you are different, because it is more than just your responsibilities. It is also about your accomplishments. What is the difference?. Maybe the underwater basket-weaving club president was responsible for hosting meetings, planning events and organizing a fundraiser. But if she did not actually accomplish any of those things, she can not add them to her resume. So consider both your responsibilities and accomplishments, whether in a club, on a team, at a job, through a service project, etc. and then think of those accomplishments in terms of numbers. Say you are the editor of your schools newspaper. Think back to how many papers you have published. How many articles? How many meetings have you led? How many students in each meeting? Say you babysit neighborhood kids. How many kids? How old are they? How often do you babysit? For how long each time? Maybe you work at a coffee shop. How many shifts per week? How many hours per shift? How many people do you serve on average each shift? Maybe you are the team captain for your lacrosse team. How many warm-ups do you lead each week? For how many teammates? Do you lead team study sessions to help keep everyones grades up? How often?. Once you have got the numbers, think of active verbs that describe exactly what you did. Here is your chance to show that you have led, managed, organized, created, problem-solved, budgeted, maintained, coached, produced, written, presented, scheduled, built, developed, traveled, bought, bid, sold, delivered, etc.
Of course your portfolio is important, but what about showcasing your creative flair in your resume itself?. Applying for a creative job gives you more leeway to get a little freer with your resume design. While you should include the key information as soon as possible, the structure and delivery can really pop. For example, if you are applying to be a computer designer, create an interactive resume that not only tells the recruiter what you are all about but shows them. This vibrant, interactive gaming-style resume by designer and illustrator Robby Leonardi, for instance, showed he truly had the chops for a designer job he sought. Researching what excites the particular company (or industry professionals) may be the secret to striking that balance. For instance, when looking for jobs in art direction, Casper Christensen and Rene Schultz told the Creative Group that they knew that the magazine Archive was a coveted publication at most creative companies. So they turned their joint resume into a mock copy of the magazine — and sent it to a group of art directors. Not only was the resume well received, but some art directors even took it for the real deal at first.
